Way of adding items in Drop Down List or List Box using Javascript

The article Way of adding items in Drop Down List or List Box using Javascript was added by raja.s on Sunday, June 06, 2010.

Hi,script type="text/javascript"> function AddItem(Text,Value) { // Create an Option object var opt = document.createElement("option"); // Add an Option object to Drop Down/List Box document.getElementById("DropDownList"

Retain DropDown,TextBox's previously selected values after redirected from another page.


 Hi People, How are you all doing?

I have 2 pages one is SearchPage & It has DropDowns, textboxes to specify the search criteria. From the search result the user is redirected to another page when he clicks the hyperlink in the search result  where he fills in the information and again redirected to SearchPage. Now the SearchPage is posted back with no state i just want to retain the search criteria and display when user comes back. Please give me some suggestion how to get this done. I've used ViewState to save the values and check them in Page_Load but they are null.   



 Update: I've come up with this code. But the problem is The values are being retained but the Button_Click event is not being handled properly. When i Check the code even after this "DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString();" DownList1.SelectedValue is EMPTY"" samw with DropDownList2 . please Suggest something


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (IsControlsEmpty())
            if (SessionExist())
                DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString()

Issues with multiline textbox, javascript and IE


Hi All,

i have a requirement to embolden/italicise the selected  text in a textbox. the way it is implemented as is by using a js function which inserts <b> and </b> tags at the start and end of the selected text  for bold, and similarly <i> and </i> tags at the start and end of the selected text  for italics.

here is the code in c# (to add attributes to link buttons)

lkbBold.Attributes.Add("onclick", "AddHTMLTags('" + txtTitle.ClientID + "', 'B'); return false;");
lkbItalic.Attributes.Add("onclick", "AddHTMLTags('" + txtTitle.ClientID + "', 'I'); return false;");

the txtTitle is the id of the text box, which contains the selected text to be emboldend.

and here's the javascript method

function AddHTMLTags(textBoxId, format)
  var textComponent = document.getElementById(textBoxId);
  var selectedText;
  var textToReplace; 
  var content = document.getElementById(textBoxId).value;
  var content1 ;
  var content2 ;
  var newContent; 
      // For IE 
      if (document.selection != undefined)
        var len =  document.selection.createRange().text.length;
        var myrange

Javascript to update value in Textbox

Hi I have a javascript file, which creates a calendar picker. This file is used through out the application and is a piece of code that I have to use because my .Net application is part of another application which uses this piece of JavaScript code.Anyhow, with the calendar picker I can save the date into a textbox, but the problem that I have is the format. Unfortunately, I cannot change the calendar picker code because this will affect other parts of the application. Therefore, what I am looking to do is to reformat the date on the textbox control. This I can do but only when I use the javascript event onfocus.Now, my question is this, is there away in javascript or with jquery that when a value enters into a textbox that this value is then reformatted to the format I want without postback or clicking on the textbox?Thanks

Problem with JavaScript on Textbox

 I have a textbox which is populated by an external javascript file which I cannot alter without affecting another part of the system. What I would like to do is once this textbox has a value to do something with it. The javascript that I want to use is fine, but it won't automatically when a value has populated it i.e. onchange. It will work when the event is onfocus. Is there away in which I can automatically fire off my javascript event when a value has entered the textbox from another piece of javascript code?  

problem with javascript in multiline textbox

 I am setting Maxlength of a textbox using javascript. Take maxlegth as 100.As we know Enter key is taking two char space. But i want to avoid this. i.e. if i press enter key after 96th char it should allow me to enter four more char where now it is allowing only 98. This is wat i am using  function textboxMultilineMaxNumber(txt,maxLen) { try { if(txt.value.length > (maxLen-1)) return false; } } catch(e){ } }

How to access querystring values from javascript after url rewriting?

Hi mates, I´m using ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. The problem that I have is the following. I´m using url rewriting (in the Global.asax file) and people see urls like this:http://localhost:1855/uk/london but after I rewrite the urls I work internally with querystring values and the urls become somehting like this:http://localhost:1855/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1In my Global.asax after I create the proper url with the querystring values I just apply it with the following sentence (this is an example):Context.RewritePath("/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1");The problem is that from javascript using the following function I access the first url and not the second:function getQueryVariable(variable) { var query = window.location.search.substring(1); var vars = query.split("&"); for (var i = 0; i < vars.length; i++) { var pair = vars[i].split("="); if (pair[0] == variable) { return pair[1]; } } } I need to access the querystring values because I need to load values in a textbox using jQuery.autocomplete and Web Services. Can anyone tell me how to access the rewritten url to get the querystring values?Thanks in advance mates

keep values in textbox in gridview whilst paging

Hi,   I have a gridview in my webpage which has paging enabled. There are around 5 textboxes in a row and when I enter some text and then move to another page and move back to the page I entered the values in, they are not lost. I have enabled the viewstate in the gridview. I have implemented a datatable to my grid which should hold the values in the viewstate. This worked before I added paging. Please can someone offer some advice as to how I can maintain the values in textboxes whilst moving between different pages? I have tried searching it but I can't seem to find any relevant info.   Thank you very much.

Custom Validator on DDL&Textbox values

I need to write a 2 custom validators that works as follows: I have a formview (Formview1) with an EditItemTemplate. The validators need to validate values in "DropDownList1" and a textbox called "EndUserGUIDTextBox" If the value in DDL1 is ("Assigned" or "Assigned to End User") and the value of EndUserGUIDTextBox is ("unassigned" or "pending" or NULL) then I need a validator to fire and return {"GUID must be assigned when status is" & DLL1 value}. If the value in DDL1 is ("In Stock" or "In Repair") and EndUserGUIDTextBox is NOT ("unassigned" or "pending" or NULL), then I need a validator to fire and return {"GUID must not be assigned when status is" & DLL1 Value}. The validators needs to run and show in the formview when the UpdateButton in my Formview is clicked. I'm doing this in VB. Real noobie here! All help appreciated. Thanks,
